Here Is The First Taste Of New NILE Music For Upcoming Album

South Carolina-based extreme technical death metallers NILE have entered the studio to record the follow-up to 2015's "What Should Not Be Unearthed" album. The upcoming effort, which is tentatively due in 2019, will mark NILE's first release with new guitarist/vocalist Brian Kingsland, who replaced Dallas Toler-Wade last year.

A one-minute video from the studio sessions for the new NILE disc was uploaded to the band's Facebook page and can be seen below.

Speaking to Metal Mad TV at this year's Hellfest in Clisson, France, NILE guitarist Karl Sanders stated about the writing sessions for the band's next disc: "It's not an overly complicated process. We start writing the songs, and we share demos back and forth, and we all contribute and try to shape the music. But we've been interrupting the process with tours here and there. So we start on a few songs, we tour, come home, work on a few more, then go back on tour, come home, work on a few more."

Last year, Sanders told Metal Wani that NILE's new album would be produced by Erik Rutan, who has previously worked with MORBID ANGEL and CANNIBAL CORPSE, among others. "I don't know exactly how that'll work out, but I think it's time for a change," he said.

According to Karl, NILE's forthcoming album will feature vocals from him and bassist Brad Parris in addition to those of Kingsland.

"Brian is a very talented vocalist," Sanders told Metal Wani. "Right now, we have more of the triple vocal attack [which is something] that had kind of fallen off in recent years. But now we're doing that, where all three of us are sharing. It's more equally balanced. I find it more interesting. I'm really happy about that too."

Karl previously described Kingsland as "a seriously talented extreme metal guitar shredder" with "a great brutal metal voice [and] a very versatile range." He added that "Brian is also a genuine, down-to-earth, hard-working and motivated guy who has helped reignite and re-establish a sense of team work back into NILE."

NILE's latest album, "What Should Not Be Unearthed", was released in August 2015 via Nuclear Blast. Produced by NILE and mixed by Neil Kernon, the CD's artwork was handled this time by Michal "Xaay" Loranc.
